How to Increase Breastmilk Output

Updated: Mar 30, 2023




A lot of people have been sending me a message about how to build a breastmilk stash. To be honest, as a first time mom, it’s all about learning from scratch. But thankfully for the last year I was able to make a stage, stored more than a 1000 bags, fed baby Top, donated to a lot of babies and continue to build my stash for Top and more babies. So I’m thankful and grateful to God that I was able to gather at least 345,600 ML of liquid gold!!


So how did I do it?

  1. Hydrate! I drink 4L of water daily

  2. Exercise - endorphins make us happy so I do light at least 5 min exercises daily but mostly do 5000 steps at least daily

  • Supplements

  • Legendairy - sunflower lecithin - my doctor told me this is what his wife took to prevent mastitis, so I take 2 pills a day.

  • Legendairy Liquid Gold - contains a blend of powerful organic ingredients designed to optimize breast milk production. Goat's rue has a long-standing reputation for supporting a healthy milk supply in dairy animals and humans while milk thistle and shatavari are also traditionally used for added lactation support.

  • Milk Thistle - I used to take the tea version before. They say it can help but I only took a few bags and once I ran out I stopped especially since my milk regulated

  • Brewers Yeast - I read about this and decided to take it especially since it’s a galactagogue. I used to eat cookies but then decided to take this as pills since it’s easier to take

  • Malunggay - the holy grail of all, I believe this can help a lot. Mega Malunggay is the brand I take, 2 capsules every 4 hours or I take it all at once - a total of 6 capsules

  • Pump schedule - you need to stick with a pump schedule so I discovered a pump schedule that worked well for me.


When Top was just born, I used to wake up in the wee hours of the day to pump - then I realized that I was getting postpartum which is why I decided that I should sleep more. Then I had an epiphany that even if I delay my pumps to a later schedule, as long as I pump the same amount of time per day then it should work! So that’s what I did and until now, Top’s a year old - I still produce the same amount of milk.


My Pump Schedule


After giving birth


12am - 10 minutes

2am - 10 minutes

4am - 10 minutes

6am - 10 minutes

8am - POWER PUMP

Power pump schedule

20 minutes

Rest 10 minutes

10 min pump

Rest 10 minutes

10 min pump


10am - 10 minutes

12pm - 10 minutes

2pm - 10 minutes

4pm - 10 minutes

6pm - 10 minutes

8pm - 10 minutes

10pm - 10 minutes


When my milk regulated then I changed my schedule to:


12am - 10 minutes

2am - sleep

4am - sleep

6am - sleep

8am - POWER PUMP

Power pump schedule

20 minutes

Rest 10 minutes

10 min pump

12pm - 10 minutes

2pm - 10 minutes

4pm - 10 minutes

6pm - 10 minutes

8pm - 10 minutes

10pm - 10 minutes


And with this schedule I’m thankful I was able to produce more than 1000 bags. So I hope this helps.
